The following is a list of CLEP and DANTES/DSST Exams accepted by WSU. The CLEP General exams are mainly for freshmen students. Check with your advisor before taking a CLEP General exam. If you are going to another college or university, check with them about the CLEP and DANTES/DSST tests and scores they accept.

If you are a transfer student from another Kansas Regent's University, CLEP scores that you sent to them can be used by WSU from the school's transcript.  If you are a transfer student from a school that is not a Kansas Regent's University, please contact the CLEP or DSST test company and arrange for your score(s) to be sent to WSU for evaluation.  Credit posted to your WSU transcript will be awarded based on the information below.
